For a paper I'm comparing Basque and German (an ergative-absolutive language vs. a nominative-accusative language). I have a nice Basque grammar book but I need some simple declarative sentences featuring the ergative case, and some simple declerative sentences featuring the absolutive case. The example sentences in the book are too complex, that is why I am asking here.
For example, a sentence like 'I eat an apple' would feature the ergative case in Basque, right? So I'm asking for these kind of simple sentences, so I can compare them with their German counterparts. Thank you in advance!
